Libra New Moon – October 2017
━═★ New Moon Blessings ★═━
The New Moon in Libra on 20th October 2017 has its zenith at 5.11am (Brisbane Time). For our friends overseas, the New Moon occurs on October 19th. Those who have Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn as their sun signs or ascendants, or have these as a strong presence within their natal charts, will feel this new moon particularly.
━═★ What does that mean for you? ★═━
The Libran New Moon brings interesting energies your way. During the next four weeks, you may notice that you are spending a lot of time in your ‘headspace’ – overanalysing, worrying, not trusting that the Universe has your back.
Libran energy seeks balance and judgement. This doesn’t mean that you should just sit back and do nothing. Be aware and use your observations wisely. Make plans. Tend to details. Be willing to take responsibility for your choices, words and actions.
Because this energy a ‘surprise’ factor to it. A bit like the old Jack-in-the-box. Things will be winding up; there will be tenseness and feeling as if ‘anything could happen’. It will be unexpected.. but you just won’t know when! Plan for all contingencies.. but have a plan!
━═★ Questions to ask yourself ★═━
- What would it take for you to enjoy what IS, in this moment?
- What would it take for rest and recreation to be a valuable and vital part of your life and living?
- What would it take for plans, goals and dreams to be created, perceived, received, generated and realised with fun and flair, balance and grace?
━═★ Ritual/Healing Suggestions ★═━
A short healing meditation, you may like to try either as an individual or in a small group.
- Incense – floral scents (rose, lilac, magnolia, orange) or Benzoin is best
- Incense holder
- A candle – aquamarine or white
- One or a selection of Libran crystals
- Paper and pen.
- Choose your sacred space for healing and reflection. Although it is preferable to see the night sky, you can choose somewhere where you feel comfortable, nurtured and secure.
- Set the incense into a holder. Place both the holder and the candle on a secure space.
- Light the candle.
As I light this candle on this night
I ask the energies to be by my side
For healing, grace, joy and ease
To manifest my intentions, please.
- Once the candle has been lit, take your paper and pen. Reflect on your life – where it has been feeling unbalanced; where you are pleased with how it is flowing.
- Light the incense
As I light this incense on this night
I ask the energies to be by my side
As my intentions are released with ease
Help me be connected and balanced, please.
- Rather than just wiring a list of what you desire, take time to visualize each intention separately. Imagine living and being what you require.
- Now visualise a beautiful sunset.
- Imagine yourself stepping into the space and feeling the peacefulness of the setting.
- Imagine the freshness of the air; the energy of the setting sun and the rising moon flowing into your being.
- Watch the clouds that you see in the sky around the sunset.
- As you bring your healing meditation to a close, ground yourself.
- Fold your paper on which you have written. Waft it through the incense – gently back and forth.
- You may choose to keep your piece of piece of paper in your sacred space – along with some appropriate Libran crystals.
━═★ Using Libra Energy Wisely ★═━
Some everyday activities which you can use to honour this energy:
- Sort through your pantry, makeup and medical supplies; check the use–by dates and throw out out-dated items.
- In the garden, sow and transplant flowering plants, herbs and ornamentals. Create a garden bed, sculpture or artwork with a theme of ‘balance’.
- Be creative – write, draw, paint, knit, sew, potter – whatever appeals to you.
- Review the areas of life where you feel out of balance. What can you change?
- Try Pilates or Yoga to bring inner–balance into your body.
- Make time to appreciate the natural beauty around you whether it be a view in the mountains or a plant flourishing in the cracks of cement.
- Keep up your water intake as a Libran Moon affects the kidneys and they will be working overtime.
- Book in for some Karmic Healing with an accomplished healer or meditate on Karmic Healing.
